Fire Museum of Maryland's Response to COVID-19
The Fire Museum of Maryland has reopened for its regular hours, currently, from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturdays. The museum temporarily closed to the public on March 16, to support Maryland’s effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. Now that Maryland has outlined a roadmap to recovery and Baltimore County has aligned with phase one of that plan, the Fire Museum will be reopening. The museum will continue with regular operations in accordance with federal, state and county laws and regulations.
Museum visitors will be required to wear face coverings and practice social distancing in accordance with CDC guidelines. The museum staff has placed hand sanitizer throughout the building and will be cleaning surfaces at regular intervals. The museum is also a very large space to allow social distancing, the main hall is 16,000 square feet, with 18 foot tall ceilings.
Making these decisions has been challenging so we appreciate the cooperation of our visitors and partners. Safety is part of the Fire Museum's mission so the health and well-being of our employees, volunteers, and visitors are very important to us.
While closed, we created resources that you can continue to take advantage of at home. We have a STEM activity you can do at home and Virtual Storytimes.
